PCOS-Friendly Recipe: Zucchini Noodles with Pesto

by Fran Jakubowicz on Oct 03, 2023

If you're seeking a delicious and nutritious PCOS-friendly meal, look no further! Our Zucchini Noodles with Pesto recipe is thoughtfully crafted to support your PCOS management journey. With a medley of wholesome ingredients and a burst of flavor, this dish is your passport to a fulfilling and balanced diet.

Ingredients:

  • 2 large zucchinis, spiralized into noodles
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 lb of grilled chicken breast (or roasted chickpeas for a vegetarian option)
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite pesto sauce (homemade or store-bought)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil leaves for garnish

How to Prepare:

  1. Spiralize the Zucchinis:

    • Begin by spiralizing the zucchinis into noodle-like ribbons. It's not only a fun process but also a fantastic way to incorporate more veggies into your diet.
  2. Cherry Tomatoes Magic:

    • Take your cherry tomatoes and halve them. This adds a pop of color and a hint of natural sweetness to your dish, while the antioxidants enhance its nutritional profile.
  3. Choose Your Protein:

    • You have options here! Grill some chicken for a lean protein kick, or roast chickpeas for a plant-based, protein-packed alternative. Both complement the zucchini noodles and pesto beautifully.
  4. Pesto Perfection:

    • Drizzle half a cup of your preferred pesto sauce (whether homemade or store-bought) over the zucchini noodles and your choice of protein.
  5. Season and Toss:

    • Season with salt and pepper to taste, and gently toss everything together until the zucchini noodles and protein are evenly coated with the pesto sauce.
  6. Garnish with Basil:

    • Finish off your creation with fresh basil leaves. Not only do they add a touch of fragrance and color, but they also contribute antioxidants to your meal.

Serving Suggestions:

To complement the vibrant flavors of this dish, consider serving it with sides like brown rice or whole wheat naan. These options provide a satisfying balance to the flavors, making your meal even more wholesome and PCOS-friendly.
